A Chinese retailer has started taking Apple iPhone 5 pre-orders despite the next-generation handset remaining firmly within the realms of rumour and speculation.

Although Apple has yet to officially unveil its next-gen Samsung Galaxy S3 rival, the iPhone 5 has been made available for advanced order in China with what is claimed as a mock up of the handsetfs new design accompanying the photographed store signage.

Although the Chinese retailer has failed to offer any concrete details around the handsetfs upcoming launch, the move marks the first time that iPhone 5 pre-orders have been opened to consumers despite an iPhone 5 release date not expected until early October following and late September first showing at the hands of Apple CEO Tim Cook.

I agree with you (of course).

This shiet sounds fish as hell. How can you take pre-orders on an iPhone that hasn't even officially been acknowledged by the company. Yeah we all know it's coming out but Apple has pretty tight controls on its supply chain from manufacturing to retail sales...so this sounds highly suspicious.

hehe I think your chances are about as good as Amazon's. I think they will get their butts kicked if they decide to make a handset.

Just wanted to share what I thought was pretty remarkable. I just recently upgraded to my first 4G LTE capable phone and I've been testing the speed of the LTE data connection here and there over the past couple of days.

Well I was in the San Gabriel Valley and I registered the following results this morning. Now this is crazy. This is almost five times the speed of my residential internet connection at home!

Haha. Not quite but of course it's more expensive than a residential line. In any event I was not paying anymore for my cellphone, but know I'm able to take advantage of the higher data speeds because I have a capable phone. Smile

Yup.

My niece and sister-in-law just upgraded to 4G... And a new phone: the Samsung Galaxy SIII.

If that phone gets any bigger, it'll be a tablet.

I have to say the new maps on iOS 6 are really bad. Sweat In my neighborhood the maps they have are at least 2-3 years old.

Apple Maps is a hunk o' sh*t. It's craptastic. The data set Apple is using is far inferior to Google's own data set.
